VENOMOUS MAXIMUS: 'Moonchild' Video Released

"Moonchild", the new video from Houston, Texas dark heavy metal band VENOMOUS MAXIMUS, can be seen below. The song comes off the group's critically acclaimed new album, "Beg Upon The Light", which will be made available in North America on July 2 via Napalm Records.

VENOMOUS MAXIMUS is one of the most successful metal bands to emerge from Houston in years, beloved of headbangers and headbanging blogs from across the U.S. and points beyond. Since its formation in 2010, the group has risen to the top of the music scene in the country's third-largest city, winning back-to-back honors at the Houston Press Music Awards as the Space City's "Best Metal Band".

In the time since the North American release of "Beg Upon The Light", the LP has met with rave reviews, being called "Lovecraftian" and a "masterpiece" by Metal Injection, "mayhem without mercy" by Decibel, "super-thick occult doom" by Rhapsody and "the best metal album to come out of Texas in a long, long time" by the Houston Press.

In a recent interview with Guitar World, VENOMOUS MAXIMUS guitarist/vocalist Gregg Higgins stated about "Beg Upon The Light": "The reason the album was kind of, so 'over the top,' you could say, and so full of stuff, is because those are the things I’ve always wanted to put into making a record. Just growing up being a teenager, you don’t have the money or the time to actually do such a thing. You just have the idea. But this record was when it all finally came together and hit. We always try to figure out a way to make all of our products as artistic creations. I also do tattoos, drawing and print."

A live powerhouse, VENOMOUS MAXIMUS toured the U.S. as hand-picked guests of New Orleans metal titans DOWN and created a huge buzz this past March at two slaying gigs as part of Austin's South By Southwest festival.
